There are only two things your body needs on a daily basis.
Everything else we can do without for days and even weeks.
But you must have water and sleep. No that’s wrong. You must have sleep and some sort of liquid. You won’t last long without them. You will die.
And even if you don’t die because of dehydration or sleep deprivation, you will die because going without will make you stupid and then you will do something that will kill you.
Today, that’s my message.
Now I could be telling you this because I have just been through a week of birthday celebrations and have barely squeezed by with enough of the essentials.
And I hate to be a hypocrite. I blabber on and on to my clients about water and sleep. I’d be a fool not to listen to my own advice.
But I’m human… and I’ve been in celebration mode.
So as I got back from eating my last “birthday” blizzard, served up by one of my favourite caristas (that is someone that makes great ice cream treats… and yes, I just made up the word.)
I reflected on two things….
One. I need to get more sleep and drink tons more water every day.
Two. If I wrote a health and wellness book it would only have these 8 words on each page…
OK, there is a number three. This birthday has been fun and endless.
Yes, we all need sleep and water but…
Now I have enough whisky to last until I finish the first draft of my next book.
I never knew how beautiful red roses could be.
And I’ve been reminded that great friends are priceless.
My only wish would be that one of the lottery tickets that those friends gave me had been the winner.
